Kids Should Feel Healthy

Their Whole Lives Through.

Kids should feel great – body, mind and spirit. Disorders affecting the chemical processes in the body can cause a child to not only have physical problems, but social and emotional ones. Because the body’s glands control things such as growth, sexuality, weight management and energy levels, children and young adults may end up feeling different from their friends and peers, leading to isolation and low self-esteem. At AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, our experts in pediatric endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism focus on the whole health of every child, knowing that a single endocrine system disorder can have repercussions at many levels.

We’re here to help you find the right physician or a location that’s convenient for you.
